IIRC from the public meeting in December, they were saying that they would be sensitively reskinning it to improve its thermal performance, and to unify it around its base where changes are being made. The banking pavilion right at the corner of Yonge and Eg will be removed, the building it's attached to to the south of it is being removed, and the the west side of it at ground level will be rebuilt to address the new pedestrian mews through the site.
Am I the only one who fondly remembers the uniquely convoluted path to Canada Square Cinemas through that corner?
Up the escalator, through into the corridor which was a mixture of shops, offices and back-of-house space, plus an elevator lobby for the tower............down some stairs, up some stairs.......around a corner and hang the corner..........
It was the alternative route to walking outside, in inclement weather.....only to pass the Mandarin on the way to an escalator to the endless hall of posters that was the intended entrance.
